Outside the ASOMF on our way home from a conference I was attending last week. It was really only just off route, and I was looking for something to make the trip a little more worthwhile. These photos were taken out front, where they were preparing for a ceremony held yesterday for National Airborne Day, and the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Airborne units, which happens to actually be today. We only spent about an hour inside, but there’s plenty of information to keep you going for several if you’ve got it. Definitely worth your while if you’ve got any interest, though.
The Airborne and Special Operations Museum is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The museum chronicles the operations of the U.S. Airborne and Special Operations forces from their foundations to today. The path takes you chronologically through World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and the war in Iraq. The museum is free to the public and open every day but Monday and federal holidays, excluding Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, and July 4th.
